Emergency Lighting

Abbot Fire Group are specialists in emergency lighting installation and emergency lighting maintenance. Emergency exit lights are required for highlighting the escape routes in the event of a power failure. There are two types of emergency exit lighting: maintained and non-maintained. Emergency lighting is a legal requirement, and is required to meet BS5266-1. It covers different areas within your building.

Maintained systems

Maintained lighting is the type of lighting which remains on permanently. It has dual purpose as standard lighting, but will still supply illumination in the event of a power failure. Generally used in public places this emergency lighting is suitable for shopping centres, theatres, and cinemas.

Non-maintained systems

This emergency exit lighting is the type of lighting that operates when there is a power failure. It is linked to a building’s light circuits and reacts to any power failure by ensuring emergency exit routes are illuminated. They are often used in workplaces, offices and factories to highlight the emergency evacuation route, which people are generally familiar with.
